A Life of Abundance - Energy and Ethics

This resource provides educational material, sermon starters, and thoughtful information how we might transition to a more sustainable energy infrastructure—one that incorporates less pollution, better community health, and an improved caretaking of God’s Creation.

Environmental Justice with Indigenous Peoples

Each year, Creation Justice Ministries offers a resource to help Christian communities pray, learn, and act on a certain issue, chosen by Creation Justice Ministries' board. Our 2017 resource explores the impact the Doctrine of Discovery has had on U.S. history and theology, as well as our relationships with God's creation and one another. It also includes information about tribal sovereignty, sacred places, and consumer choices. The resource can be useful for observing Earth Day Sunday on the Sunday closest to Earth Day (April 22), the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on September 1, or the Sunday closest to Indigenous Peoples Day/Columbus Day in October. Find sermon preparation resources, hymn suggestions, Christian education ideas, action opportunities, and more. Download it today at www.creationjustice.org/indigenous, and remember you can find a host of other Christian education resources released in previous years at www.creationjustice.org/educational-resources.
